Femoral pseudoaneurysm, Doppler color flow mapping
A case of femoral pseudoaneurysm occurring at the site of previous puncture with color doppler is reported. It showed the blood flow in the aneurysm and the point where the blood comes into. The diagnosis may be confirmed with the use of ultrasonography and angiography. The color doppler has proved to be a useful technique for diagnosing femoral pseudoaneurysm.
